3.0 out of 5 stars A bit too much Lock Stock, 3 Feb 2010
This review is from: Snatch - Two Disc Set [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
I enjoyed Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels a lot. It was original, funny and stylishly made. Snatch is funny and stylishly made but reminded me too much of Lock Stock.
It has the Guy Ritchie trademarks of colourful character names, convoluted plots, slow motion sequences and hectic editing.....and Vinnie Jones but I felt he was tying to much to copy the successful formula of Lock Stock.

The plot deals with how the world of illegal boxing and "Pikies" (travellers) don't mix that well. Ritchie obviously used the success of his previous film to attract big name stars to the cast, notably Brad Pitt and Benicio Del Toro. Pitt is excellent as the fighting traveller who can't be beaten. Jason Statham returns as the "hero" and narrator.

Many familiar faces show up playing the inhabitants of London's underworld.

Perhaps you would enjoy this film more if you have never seen Lock Stock. I'd definitely prefer the older film.
